PVL Connecting Loop

Wire Loop boxes are installed to the formwork according to spacing needed to bear the shear loads, before the panel is cast. After removing the formwork, protective tape is removed and the loop is opened with for example a hammer or a pin.

Pair of boxes and the vertical rebar installed into loops form a joint which resists vertical shear forces, together with the concrete grout in the joint. Peikko PVL Connecting Loops are available in loop lengths 60, 80, 100, 120 and 140 mm.
